El Limón

Single Estate

Grown by Nieves Tantalean
El Limón

Nieves has constructed a wonderful producer blend of organic Caturra, Typica and Pache harvested from her two parcels—El Limón 1 and El Limón 2. Her precise control over fermentation and drying shows in this well-balanced cup with notes of dried cranberry, chocolate, and hints of honey with delicate florals.
